R. L. Walterscheid, L. J. Gelinas, C. R. Mechoso and G. Schubert Evaluation of momentum and sensible heat fluxes in constant density coordinates: Application to superpressure balloon data during the VORCORE campaign Journal of Geophysical Research: Atmospheres (1984–2012) 117

Version of Record online: 2 MAY 2012 | DOI: 10.1029/2011JD016731

Key Points

  • Constant density coordinates are a natural system for superpressure balloon data
  • Largest momentum fluxes are over Antarctic Peninsula
  • Heat flux divergence is a significant fraction of stratospheric heat imbalance
